    My name is Richard im 34 from the UK.

    My pain started when I was hurt my lower back about five years ago while putting my socks on. I had a shooting pain go right into my back. My back tensed up but then the day after I was fine. a couple of days later I went for my usual jog and eveything was fine but then just as I was loading the washing machine my back hurt again even more so. I went to the doctors and was given painkillers etc etc. It was bad for about a week but settled down but it was always a nagging ache. Anyway I stopped jogging and carried on with life as usual. Then one morning I woke up to find my upper back acheing and knotty it felt awful. Ive never been the same since. I now have trigger points (muscle knots), tender point or whatever label you like to put on them.
    I have tried many things to solve the issues here is a some of them.
    Physical therapy, osteopath, chiropractor,acupuncture,craniosacral therapy, bowen technique, trigger point injections, trigger point therapy,backwards and forwards to the doctor.

    My mri shows nothing. I was told my lower back pain was coming from my right side si joint which made sense as it was exactly where the little dimple at the back is.
    As for my upper and middle back knots I spoke to an egoscue therapist who looked at my posture and poined out muscle imbalances I had particularly foward swaying hips and rounded shoulders, forward head and very tight pecs Causing my back to round. I have tried different exercises to no avail. Basically nothing has worked. I came across hanna somatics two year ago which helped to convince me that my pain was more linked to the brain and the brain body connection.

    So here I am today just starting tms therapy and ive read nearly all healing back pain book and im quite impressed.

      It's a 42 day structured program produced for free by the tmswiki from people who have healed themselves and tms doctors.

      You sound a lot like me. I think this TMS therapy with the mind/body syndrome sounds like the best therapy I've come across, so I'm going with it. I also tried an Egoscue therapist, and all those other therapies you mentioned, plus more. Maybe if we both stick with this idea, the pain will get better, but I feel very impatient after all this time! Can't help it.

        Glad to see you have started on this forum. There is loads of help here. Are you aware of the SEP Structured Education Program?
